A torso was found in a water treatment facility in the City of Industry ABC 7 reported.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies were called to the 1900 block of Workman Mill Road after the torso was discovered around 9:25 a.m. No information of the torso has been released as the investigation is ongoing.

This discovery came days after a foot and a calf were found at the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant at 24501 South Figueroa St. in Carson on Saturday morning.

Said coroner's Lt. Joe Bale to City News Service: "You can live without a foot and a leg or an arm. We can't assume somebody's dead just because they are missing a foot and a calf,''

No word yet if the discoveries are related, but it's sounding like a very bad episode of Dexter.

Update 4:45 p.m.: Sheriff's department investigators told CNS that the torso of the woman is related to the leg that was found in Carson.
